The Met Office said although this weekend’s rain is less heavy than last, there is a risk of flooding where it falls on “already saturated ground”.

Southern England will see “heavy and at times thundery showers” that will “merge into longer spells of rain” with over an inch in some areas. The wettest spots close to the English Channel coast could see almost three inches.
